NAS solutions built using the Windows Storage Server 2003 on standard Intel platforms provide a very cost effective solution to file serving. Servers built on this platform can export file services using CIFS, NFS, and other protocols, which provides a convenient platform to consolidate files.
Regardless of whether your company is subject to HIPAA, Sarbanes-Oxley, Gramm-Leach-Bliley, any number of state regulations, or none at all, configuration compliance has a place in most if not all business and government organizations. Find out in this paper how you can achieve automated configuration compliance with the SafeWord SecureWire IAM appliance from Secure Computing.
Healthcare organizations are being targeted by financially motivated attackers that steal and sell valuable data, including identities and computing resources. This white paper defines the new threat, and outlines three important steps that providers can take to protect their critical systems.
The classic definition of information security states that the goal is to protect information from possible breaches in confidentiality, integrity, or availability. This paper provides some context, then five simple solutions to help mid-sized organizations keep their end point security under control.
Get this free whitepaper now and read how a newer architecture, Appliance-enabled Software (AeS) services, combines a plug-in monitoring appliance with a hosted dashboard application to provide the benefits of SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) along with failover out-of-band communication capabilities for dependable alert notification and escalation.
Network monitoring software packages require complex installation, ongoing maintenance and additional costs for servers and third-party applications. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) network monitoring alternatives greatly simplify implementation and maintenance, but they rely on uninterrupted Internet access to function, often require complex VPNs or firewall modifications, and typically provide limited access to historical data.
Company data is vulnerable to threats from - insiders, unauthorized access to data, data backup, off-site mirroring - just to name a few. Encrypting data at rest, on tape or disk, significantly mitigates these threats. This document provides guidance into some of the factors a company should consider when evaluating storage security technology and solutions.
CCU sought to encrypt its backup tapes for keeping customer data secure in transit and in storage at the offsite tape-vault vendor’s facility. As a financial institution, CCU was subject to stringent government regulations. With nearly 60 gigabytes of data to encrypt each night, CCU knew that a software solution was out of the question.
Given Payformance’s longstanding commitment to protecting the privacy of its clients’ information, the company has decided to investigate data encryption solutions for its primary hard drive storage and secondary backup tape storage. With its multi-vendor interoperability, NeoScale’s CryptoStor storage security appliances emerge as the obvious choice.
Chartered in 1973, San Francisco-based Spectrum Federal Credit Union serves over 12,000 members. When the issue arose on how to protect their members’ personal data residing on backup tapes, Spectrum FCU took no chances – they and their Techical Advisory Board made the decision to encrypt this important information with the help of NeoScale Systems, an undisputed leader in this emerging market.
The HSC network services group supports more than 2000 desktops, servers and backend systems such as e-mail, file, networking, application and storage services for general administration, dental and medical schools. HSC wanted to manage and reduce HIPAA compliance costs and processes associated with protecting PHI data within its storage infrastructure – a legacy SAN environment with evolving applications.
Qsent needed to shore up its disaster recovery strategy. This meant sending backup tapes – each with more than 2.5 terabytes of data – between data centers and storing them offsite. To keep all its data safe and secure, Qsent chose NeoScale’s CryptoStor wire-speed tape security appliance to encrypt and decrypt data.
With horror stories in the news every week about lost or stolen laptops and backup tapes, the senior management team at Oregon Community Credit Union knew they had to do everything within their powers to protect their critical data as it traveled offsite to a third-party tape vaulting vendor. They were tasked with finding an affordable solution that would strike a balance between security, ease of use, and scalability.
As more states pass regulations governing the security, confidentiality, and integrity of customer data, a leading national bank has recognized its need to ensure the safety and security of personal data for its thousands of customers. To ensure compliance and maintain the security of this information, the bank has deployed NeoScale’s CryptoStor Tape appliances to help accomplish its objectives.
Enterprise customers want software applications delivered as server appliances because they help to reduce IT costs and complexity. Appliances provide better performance, security and manageability. Learn from experts, about factors to consider and things to avoid with the appliance delivery model.
